GTA 5 Online Casino car update adds F1 Progen PR4 as free podium gift
Thursday 20th February 2020
Grand Theft Auto Online just added the F1 Progen PR4 car in the casino and it's a must-own for collectors.
GTA 5 released it's new GTA Online update earlier today and made its usual assortment of changes to the game.
This included the same updates we come to expect every Thursday, from discounts and bonuses to new cars available from the games vendors.
But there was one feature that didn't change. The Casino podium vehicle stayed the same and according to the details available, the Roosevelt Valor was once again up for grabs for the second week in a row.
However, Rockstar Games appear to have made a swift switcharoo just before releasing their weekly newswire blogpost.
Because now, well, the free podium car is a far more attractive proposition.
Now players can pick up an F1 car, known as the PR4.
According to Rockstar Games expert and insider, TezFunz2, the PR4 will be available for purchase later on but for the time being, is available from the Lucky Wheel in the casino.
It's believed that when the car is available to purchase, from Legendary Motorsport, it'll cost $3,515,000, which ain't cheap - that's for sure.
Here's the description for those wanting to know more.
"Okay, before you click off, we know what you're thinking. The power, the handling, the aerodynamics, they're all very well but what can you possibly do with as formidable an open-wheel race car as the Progen PR4 on the city streets? You're the one reckless enough to find out. You tell us." -- Legendary Motorsport description.
UPDATE - Rockstar Games has now released a new blog post with more details, which you'll find underneath:
"Before you can go all out in the pursuit of glory with the new Open Wheel Race Series on February 27, The Diamond Casino & Resort is giving you the first chance to add one of these nimble and magnificent racing machines to your own garage.
"That's right -- spin the Lucky Wheel this week for a chance to claim the Progen PR4 with the red and white Redwood livery, a week before it's available from Legendary Motorsport.
